In the Heart of Wild, Wonderful West Virginia

Your Alumni Association Helping Young Students


Did you know that in the past 15 years your Alumni Scholarship Fund has helped Gilmer County's high school graduates with financial assistance to attend college with almost $300,000 in scholarship awards!!?  This has enabled some students to attend college who could not have done so without your assistance.  If you contribute to the scholarship fund, we thank you, if you haven't yet, please do so, it is money well spent and will help a deserving young person to attend college AND it is TAX DEDUCTIBLE!  Due to an absence of donations to the other college/university fund, we are no longer able to give scholarships to students attending a college other than Glenville State College.
